The 1974 John Wayne movie “McQ” will be shown on May 4th  & 5th at the magnificent 7th Street Theatre in Hoquiam, co-hosted by the Museum of the North Beach.

“McQ” was released fifty years ago on January 1, 1974. This action-packed crime drama was filmed on location in Seattle, Aberdeen, Pacific Beach, Pt. Grenville and Moclips.

A car chase involving three vehicles begins on the beach at Analyde Gap between Pacific Beach and Moclips.  A car rollover stunt using the “McQ Cannon” was the first time in cinema history an explosive device was used to flip a car over. A 1973 Chevrolet Impala rolled over five times and landed perfectly on its wheels.

This special showing is a fundraiser.  There will be a raffle for a scarce “McQ” coffee mug with John Wayne’s imprinted signature on the reverse side (winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday August 31).  Several copies of the 2007 DVD (with a special 8 minute featurette) will be available for sale.

The 7th Street Theatre will be showing the film on Saturday, May 4th at 7:30pm and again on Sunday, May 5th at 2pm.  Admission is $6.00.  Don’t miss your chance to see this film on the big screen!
